K2 Peace Keeper Review And Buying Advice

K2 Peace Keeper 2015 - 2013 Review by The Good Ride

The K2 Peacekeeper is new for 2013 and a very pow specific directional ride.  It’s nice to see such a powder board have no taper because sometimes companies can get just way too slashy so this is kind of a unique powder board for this shape. This is still slashy but with more of a double ender feel in the back. Not much has changed from 2013-2015.

On Snow Feel:  It’s flat to rocker profile is very stable and because this has no taper it’s not washy off the tail like tapered boards are. Of course this won’t be catchy either.

Powder:  The Peace Keeper is a great board for floating effortlessly in one direction in the deep stuff.  The ride isn’t the post powder/groomer destroyer butit can bring a smile to your face.So if you are all about riding one direction and getting really surfy the Peace Keeper is the call for K2 boards.

Turn Initiation and Carving:   The K2 Peace Keeper is pretty quick and easy edge to edge and offers a fun off the tail ride for trees, tight chutes and open faces. There isn’t much flat in this board and there is a lot more rocker.  That doesn’t make this a fun board for going out and carving morning groomers but it is stable and easy to turn when there isn’t powder.

Speed:  Pretty damp and stable.

Uneven Terrain:  K2 boards in general do a good job when it’s bumpy and the K2 Peace Keeper can surf through moguls and bumpy snow pretty well.

Edge Hold:  Middle ground edge hold.  Nothing bad and nothing spectacular.

Flex:  This is medium bordering on Medium/Stiff.

The rest doesn’t really matter. It’s not very poppy on a turn or to springy on an ollie but it’s still doable.
